Cool. Congrats on the move to hawaii. I lived in hawaii for a couple months also. Great place to live. Job's are a little harder to find depending what you are looking for. I lived on the Island of Kauii so there wasn't many job opportunities for me. But say if you are moving to Oahu there are tons of jobs involving the tourism industry. Good Luck and have fun.
Aloha
Jerome

I will be on Oahu. I'm really not set on what industry I would want to work in per say, I've been in tons, but the tourism world seems like it would be interesting.

We currently live in Groton, CT. With the move comes so many things to think/research/plan that I found the reptile rescue as my last resort, just so I can spend some time looking into things such as a new job, home, etc.

I'll admit it, I'm timid to just give them to anyone. How do you pick who you should and should not sell to? No disrespect to anyone who’s offered, but it seems like many people are willing to ‘take them off my hands’ for me, no one has offered to buy them. I know anyone will take them, but how do I ensure they find a good home?

You wont get offers to buy them. Offer a selling price and go from there. I offered but I couldn't really pay you much for it. I wouldn't buy it anyway because I would want to give you the option of taking it back when you return to the mainland. I'd guarantee it a good home but that's up to you who you decide to trust. But I don't have a lot of experience with snakes so you can certainly find a better home than me. But if you want someone responsible who wont let it go hungry and keep it clean and all that that's a different story. If they are people in the area, ask to see where they live and see how other herps are kept to get an idea. The more I post on threads the better idea I get if someone is a responsible herper or not. The best you can hope for is the vibe you get when you meet someone. I don't blame you for being hesitant certainly. One thing that bugs me about the herp world is the way that people don't screen the homes the animals go to like responsible breeders do with dogs or cats. Most (not all) herp deals leave that up to herp rescue organizations to deal with the ramifications of an unfit home. So anyone with no experience can very easily obtain a snake they can't handle and it's really sad. I commend you for being concerned about their well being and making sure they go to wonderful homes. I wish more people had that atitude about reptiles.

Pics are in... maybe

Let's see if this works... (if not, I was just trying to post a few pics, sorry they're not the greatest- but I like them of course!)

Boscoe- colombian red tail


Mars (preshed) hog isle

Clyde (burm)

Clyde again


And if it works, there's my ladies (excluding Pliskin the BP, she had a full belly and so we didn't take her out for pictures).

These are the gals that I don't want to give up.

Thank you.
I've got about a month and a half max before I have to say good bye. Finding them homes has slightly been on the back burner- tonight my fiance and I are going to tell our parents that we are getting married in CT by a chaplin on the naval base and that we don't want a big thing in Chicago. My mind has been a tad elsewhere. His parents will be fine, mine are a whole other story.
